Future learning

Is it true that, as Ken Robinson bluntly stated, schools kill creativity? Because rapid technological, social, and environmental changes require us to be just that: creative. Over the past year, the Learning Lab has provided a platform for students to rethink the university, education, learning and teaching. The result is a prototype of a learning environment in the form of an academic minor program. The minor will combine academic enquiry with a creative capacity for innovation and transformation. Hence the working title Creative Enquiry.


The students will share their thoughts on a new approach to education in relation to challenging contemporary social issues. Kindred spirits are invited to think with them about the advancement and design of the program. The final presentation will be on May 31st.
